Job performance may be described as “an act of accomplishing or executing a given task.” It could also be described as the ability to combine, skillfully, the right behaviour towards the achievement of organizational goals and objectives. The teachers’ job performance indicators are the preparation of lesson plans and lesson notes, effective lesson delivery, classroom management, evaluation of student. Appreciation is one of the motivational factors which stimulate worker for increased job performance. It is a factor that makes people put more effort and energy into what they do. It is therefore imperative for managers to show a sense of appreciation to its employees at work place. Appreciation is an ability to understand the worth, quality, or importance of something or someone for the work performed in an organization. Management must introduce Management By Objective (MBO) approach so that all staff will take part and be able to contribute meaningfully to the development of the organization and the school administrators should provide an avenue for teachers’ recognition.
